Overview

CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments lab is a premium Cybrary lab that allows students to perform automated assessments of systems or networks according to an audit policy. CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments Lab is intended for Intermediate level students and learners.

CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments Lab teaches students to conduct Vulnerability Scans using Penetration Testing Tools and Techniques which includes Social Engineering and Network Analysis. CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments Lab is aimed towards the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work profile.

Upon successful completion of CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments lab, the student will be able to identify systemic security issues based on the analysis of vulnerability and configuration data. The student also learns to implement the basic CIAAN (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Authentication, Non-Repudiation) IT Security and Privacy Principles as per the organizational requirement.

CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments lab takes most students 1-3 hours to complete.

In CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments Lab, students will learn about Vulnerability Assessments, which involve conducting vulnerability scans and identifying as well as remediating vulnerabilities in security systems. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to identify security threats and issues based on the vulnerability and configuration data analysis.

In CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments Lab, students also have the opportunity to learn and implement Social Engineering Techniques such as Phishing, Baiting, Tailgating as a part of developing insights about the context of organization's threat niche. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to assess an organization's preparedness to Social Engineering risks that might be compromised by targeting the employees.

In CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments Lab, students can implement automated tools such as Nmap, Fuzzing, etc. to identify vulnerabilities in the organization's network architecture and perform Risk Assessments. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to implement Network Scanning and Analysis Tools to identify, mitigate, analyze and remediate the network loopholes, misconfigurations, and vulnerabilities in the organization's network architecture.

In CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments Lab, the basic IT/Cyber Security Privacy Principles i.e. CIAAN (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Authentication, Non-Repudiation) are reinforced into the student's knowledge and helps to benefit in assessing the robustness of security systems and designs. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to apply the CIAAN basic IT/Cyber Security Privacy Principles to an organization's IT Infrastructure.

In CYBRScore's Automated Vulnerability Assessments Lab, students learn to utilize automated tools and software which aid in generating relevant and credible reports about the vulnerable security systems and designs. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to find, assess and report the vulnerabilities in an organization's IT Infrastructure.
